Rejection Playlist: Volume 1, Track 12: “Yr Mangled Heart”

For something a little different today, allow me to introduce you The Gossip, a Pacific Northwest punky/gospel band.

I love this song for a lot of reasons, but mostly the line, “I don’t want the world, I only want what I deserve.” That’s true, right? I don’t want to be J.K. Rowling or Stephanie Meyer. I just want to write a good book that means something to someone. If it changes one person’s life, then I think that might be enough. That’s what keeps me moving through those dark days when I’m ready to say, “F-this noise, I’m done.”

If everything you do has got a hold on me
Then everything I do has got a hole in it
I’ve been here before I should be used to it
But I can’t take it no more, I can’t take it no more
Oh whoa, oh whoa whoa whoa

Your mangled heart, your battered love that’s hanging on to memories
You’re letting go of everything that used to be
I’ve had enough, you’ll build me up to let me down, yeah

What do you think? Do you want the world? Or do you just want what you deserve?
